The holiday season is

a great time to give back and have something beautiful to enjoy forevermore!


There is more than one way to give to your favorite art businesses and arts organizations:

Order a Custom Commission

Commissions are ways to offer unique, once-in-a-lifetime gifts to those we care about. Do you have any artists you have been following on social media? Why not order a bespoke gift for someone in your life? The best part? Payment flexibility: many commissions include a 50% deposit when placing your order, with the remaining 50% due upon delivery.

Promote on Social Media

Share your favorite artists’ online and in-person classes, or help promote their products. A testimonial can go a long way for any small business owner, so drop a personal endorsement on social media to help support their creative endeavors. Many artists and local businesses are heavily impacted by online reviews—show your support by giving them 5-stars on Yelp, Facebook, or Google Business. A detailed, kind message of why you love their business can be transformative for an up-and-coming artisan.

Give Artists the Gift of Lasting Knowledge

Black Friday Courses As the world changes, so does the way art is sold. Artists need to stay up to date and informed about emerging trends and technologies. CHF offers Thriving ArtistTM Virtual Campus: Digital Learning Built for Creative Professionals. Instead of gifting a single course, gift a bundle of courses at a substantial discount. This confers lifetime access, so your gift will continue to give and artists can learn at their own pace. The Campus provides different perspectives on a broader theme, so artists go deeper and are assured that the topics are more thorough than any one course. Bundles range from $99 to $299 and often include “bonus” courses. Take a look at the bundles below: USE PROMO CODE BLACKFRIDAY30 for 30% off before December 1st, 2021!

Donate What You Can

Make a financial donation  (and consider making it monthly): Recurring donations are the most sustainable way for arts organizations and nonprofits to stay afloat. You can donate to CHF here.

Donate Services: Event Hosting, Catering, and More. Share your time, expertise, and connections by providing valuable services—such as hosting a fundraiser, or photographing one of our learning events—that allow us to continue being a fiscally-efficient organization.

Donate your Thoughts & Leadership: Write, Teach, Be Interviewed
Highlight Your Expertise. CHF interviews business and art-industry professionals, working artists, collectors, and arts-organization leaders for our audience of visual artists who want insights and information on how to thrive in the business of art.
Harness the power of the written word. Propose an article or a recurring column aimed at providing working artists with entrepreneurial insight or business expertise.

Impart your knowledge directly to artists. Facilitators, mentors, and teachers bring subject-matter expertise to working artists. For more information contact,
